So, the other cold, cold morning, when Sarah was writing her book (more on that later), it seemed like a good time to hang out and try out a non-peanut butter recipe. This method for making bird feeders involves combining unflavored gelatin and birdseed in muffin tins or cookie cutters, putting them in the fridge to set, then tying some twine through the hole and hanging them on a tree.
Measuring and mixing was the best part:
So was putting the "bird Jell-o" in the cupcake pan.
|"Mommy, are there baby birds in here?"|
We put some straws through the middle to make a hole.
Happy birthday, birds!
We stuck the bird jell-o in the fridge overnight.
And it STILL fell apart.
Sorry it's been heavy on the "Here's all the goofy stuff I did with my kids!" lately. I promise I'll get back to heckling Mike very soon. BTW, do you like the new pegs? Leprechauns. Sarah is drawing up plans for an elaborate trap to catch some on St. Patrick's Day. We're also going to enlist the help of Eddie the Elf on the Shelf, to see if he'll help us. After all, elves and leprechauns are both magical beings that show up once a year.
